Project: Identification of plant produced natural toxins leaching from soil

Principal supervisor: Prof. Jan H. Christensen

Intro to project:

Toxins released from plants to aqueous environment are considered as an important natural source of water contamination and account for many health problems. The majority of these toxins and their transformation products, however, are unidentified. Here, a state-of-the art non-target screening approach is proposed in order to determine the presence of these natural toxins in soil leachate. Compared to traditional target screening, with this new method, all substances in the sample will be analyzed without any pre-selection, providing an unbiased dataset with both known and unknown compounds included.
